So, after some general chatting with my Dark Heresy GM I mentioned that I wouldn't mind to have a go painting one of his many Warlocks. Considering he had managed to break a decade of my absence from war games he relented and gave me a lovely old Jes Goodwin sculpt.
I chose the colours of the alternative Craftworld Yme-Loc after seeing a particularly good looking Farseer which really inspired me with the stark contrasts of the orange, blue and grey.
I'll post a link here for your perusal. http://www.coolminiornot.com/237657
So, here are a couple of progress shots. I have to say I am very happy with the way things are going considering apart from being shown some new techniques and trying these out on some old Swooping Hawks, I haven't painted anything in about 10 years.
Shading and highlighting on robe.
Shading and highlighting on helmet and faceplate. (Before glazing)
Obviously I have a little way to go, if anyone has any tips in general or specifically in the area of crystalline blue blades I would appreciate hearing them.
Thanks for reading my first real post.
